Evidence contributing to theories which link prefrontal right sided activity to negative emotion and left sided activity to positive emotions could be found in form of alpha2 (10-13Hz) desynchronization as well as tendencies for alpha1 (8-10Hz), delta (1-4Hz) and theta1 (4-6Hz) asynchronies only. Increasing beta1 (13-20Hz) activity in both hemisphere over parietal areas and increasing left sided gamma (30-50Hz) activity over parietotemporal areas also significantly distinguished emotional states but not in line with introduced theo
